    Columbias newest village still growing

    River Hill is the newest of Columbias10 villages, dating back to 1991. It had been around for nearly twodecades by the time I moved here in2010. Like those who were drawn to elsewherein Columbia, there was much we foundattractive about living in River Hill the trailsand pathways, the village center, the greatschools and accessibility.And as with Columbia, theres much about

    River Hill that continues to change. While thevillage is still relatively new, there are manydevelopments that have been completed, aregoing on now or are coming soon both in and around the area.River Hill Garden Center has expanded and Clarksville Commons is being

    built. Theres a proposal for the auto park to expand as well. New retail storesmay be added. New homes could soon be constructed. The U.S. PostalService wants to open a new post office in the area after the previous oneclosed some five years ago. And the state and county governments recentlyannounced that Route 32 would be widened from north of Clarksville up intoCarroll County. All of this taken together is a sign of how the village andgeneral area are growing.Theres also plenty already here. Im glad to see that River Hill Village

    Center is doing well. Our family enjoys going to River Hill Pool, whichrecently received an honorable mention in Howard Magazines annual awards as one of the best pools for kids. We like Columbia Gym, ColumbiaAssociations fitness club in the village center. Thats usually where we start our walks around the village. Besides CAs pathways, theres the system of trails in the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area, a 1,021-acrenatural preserve.River Hill is home as well to the River Hill Independence Day Parade,

    which includes the fun and popular Precision Lawn Chair Marching Dads,who are better seen live since no description will do them justice.This is a great community. I am calling upon our residents to participate

    in our meetings and share their perspectives to help make this an even better place to be.Thank you,Chao Wu
